Storyline

A cagey professor and the syndicate team up on a deadly caper. About $750,000 in traveler checks are stolen in Denver. A planeload of criminals posing as academics board a charter flight to Honolulu, with each given $7,500 in traveler checks to spend. A hit man ensures a woman employee of the Honolulu office of the traveler check company can't get the serial numbers of the hot checks circulated. McGarrett calls the caper a "jigsaw puzzle." The question is whether he can solve it in time. Written by Bill Koenig

multiple parts
2 July 2009 | by See all my reviews

There were many multiple roles played by different actors during the lifetime of this series but none more puzzling then those of Glenn Cannon. Mr Cannon played 5 different parts (through the 1971 season) before settling on the role of District Attorney John Manicote in 1972. He played that part for 28 episodes and in his final episode in 1977 was then Attorney General John Manicote. I guess enough " book em ,Dannos" got the DA enough points to get elected to that post. Let me take time out today to wish a Happy 50th anniversary on August 21,2009 to our 50th state. The state was admitted to the Union on August 21, 1959, making it the 50th state and also the last state to be currently admitted to the union. Aloha!
